High fashion tennis takes the clay court test.
adidas Y-3, meet clay. Hope you like the way it looks on you. The adidas Y-3 collaboration, announced earlier this spring, is finally hitting the courts it was designed for. The cutting edge new tennis fashion collection for men and women marks the second time adidas has brought a high fashion designer to the courts. Stella McCartney was first.
Yohji Yamamoto, the creative director behind Y-3, talks below about the inspiration behind his take on tennis apparel. This is his first collaboration in our sport and the first time his lines will be worn by pro athletes during play.
“We wanted to make something new, something exciting, something people didn’t expect. A new movement in tennis. To compete is very tough – with Y-3 we wanted to win.” -Yohji Yamamoto
And they have. Great stuff. Can’t wait to watch it all in motion on Ana Ivanovic and Jo Wilfried Tsonga. Ball kids too. Love those knee highs!
